Obtaining Commons Pipeline

If you are using Maven (version 2.0 and above) the easiest way to incorporate Commons Pipeline into your project is to add the following entries in the appropriate sections of your project's pom.xml file:

      <name>Snapshot Repository</name>

If you are not using Maven for your project, nightly builds are available from http://people.apache.org/builds/jakarta-commons/nightly/commons-pipeline/ .


Ordinarily, a processing pipeline will be embedded in an application; however, it is also possible to use a simple XML file to configure a pipeline instance that can be run directly from the command line with the syntax:

java org.apache.commons.pipeline.config.DigesterPipelineFactory my_pipeline_conf.xml 

See Configuration Using Digester for how to set up a pipeline configuration file.
